What is a Kybella injection?

The submental region is a vital part of the face and neck as it impacts the balance and harmony of the entire face. Submental fat can cause an undesirable chin profile making the lower face and neck appear unappealing and older.shutterstock 66765259 253x300 - What is a Kybella injection?

Some people may have significant amounts of submental fat as well as other signs of aging such as saggy skin and lipoatrophy of the lower facial area. Such conditions can create an unattractive submental profile. Kybella is an FDA approved cosmetic dermatology injectable treatment specially designed to reduce excess fat below the chin (submental fat).

Suncoast Skin Solutions, led by reliable board-certified dermatologist Dr. Christopher Ewanowski, provides Kybella injections to patients in Tampa, Brandon, Lutz, Seminole, Riverview, Brooksville, Winter Haven, Daytona Beach, Largo, St. Petersburg, Ocala, The Villages Central Florida, Florida, and surrounding communities in this area of the country.

Kybella Injectable Treatment from Kythera

Kythera is a manufacturer of innovative non-surgical cosmetic treatments, which introduced the advanced Kybella injectable treatment, also called ATX-101. This treatment has been developed to mitigate the moderate to severe fullness or convexity occurring due to submental fat.

The FDA has given its approval to Kybella injections specifically for the submental fat reduction. Kybella earned the distinction of being the first non-surgical treatment to have received FDA-approval for the elimination of submental fat. These fatty deposits can affect the appearance of the face making an individual appear older or heavier.

Keith Leonard, President and CEO of Kythera corroborates that Kybella is a clinically established option which can be individualized according to the needs of the patient as well as their goals for an enhanced chin profile. Patients usually experience a higher satisfaction level with this unique and effective non-surgical procedure.  

Kybella Procedure

The treatment provider will administer Kybella using injections precisely into the targeted fat pockets beneath the chin. Kybella is customized to meet the patient’s cosmetic goals. The in-office treatment session usually takes around 15 to 20 minutes.

A majority of patients experience noticeable outcomes within two to four treatment sessions. The patient may receive up to six Kybella sessions in total.

Dr. Michael C. Edwards, President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), elaborates that Kybella is a truly innovative product in the dermatology and medical spa industry with the potential to offer excellent results. He emphasizes the significance of choosing well trained and focused plastic surgeons for administering this treatment.

Proven Outcomes

Kybella has undergone clinical testing all over the world in more than 20 clinical trials involving around 2,600 patients. Patients who receive Kybella treatment experience improvements in the fat deposits underneath the chin. They also report experiencing an improvement in emotional aspects due to submental fat reduction.  

Procedure
